Hi,

Yes it is still possible to use 7.5, although the updates may try to upgrade you to 8.0, you will just have to check what the updater is doing and deselect this.

If needs be here's a download link to AVG 7.5 @ Filehippo

There are alternatives,

avast! 4 Home Edition (comes with built-in anti-rootkit and anti-spyware protection)
Avira AntiVir Personal - Free Antivirus (provides some rootkit detection and removal))
RISING Antivirus Free Edition
ClamWin Free Antivirus
PC Tools AntiVirus Free Edition

Please note that ClamWin Free Antivirus does not include an on-access real-time scanner. You need to manually scan a file in order to detect a virus or spyware
